Being a parent is tough enough, so just imagine how hard it is if you have two - or 3 or even more - babies to deal with all at once!

Multiple births have a whole raft of challenges that the parents of a single baby don't have to contend with, from having to buy more of everything, having to divide your time between your babies and just trying to find the specialist information that anyone expecting twins or more neeeds to know.

I've only ever had one baby at a time, so I can only imagine what you have to cope with when you have a multiple birth.

However Delyth Raffell knows all about this, and having given birth to twins herself. She used her own experience to found the website Twins UK which has advice for parents of multiples as well as stocking those hard-to-track-down products that make life with twins or more that little bit easier.

She has very kindly written four guest posts here about how she coped with the many challenges of looking after twin babies and how to stay sane at the same time!
